Hi guys,

I've first enabled AHCI in BIOS and then I've installed Windows 7 x64 on a brand new PC with SSD.

So I wan't to ask does Windows 7 has automatically configured it's Registry for AHCI mode?

I checked via CMD with this command fsutil behavior set disabledeletenotify and it returned 0.

Thanks

yes Windows will automatically install the most appropriate storage controller driver

It is still highly recommended to install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver afterwards (or the AMD equivalent)

AHCI is bios controlled. If it's on, then it's on.
Back during Vista, turning on AHCI resulted in Vista failing to boot. They pretty much figured it out on Win7.

So, if you turn it on in your Bios and windows starts, then you're good to go.
Besides, some utilities report false indications.

I can't, because I have started this as a discussion not as a question. :(
